One 17-year-old UK teenager named Deryn Blackwell was given a new lease on life, and his mother attributes his survival to cannabis.
At age 10, Deryn was diagnosed with a rare and ultra-aggressive form of leukemia. After he failed to recover following multiple rounds of chemotherapy and radiotherapy, doctors told his parents, Simon and Callie Blackwell, that there was little more they could do to save their son.
After a doctor denied the Blackwell family’s request for a cannabis-based painkiller, Deryn’s parents turned to the black market in desperation. After buying marijuana from a drug dealer, Simon and Callie turned it into oil at home using a pressure cooker and an online instructional.
While Callie Blackwell originally sought out cannabis to relieve her son’s anxiety and pain while he was in hospice, the teenager eventually made a miraculous recovery. His mother has attributed his survival to marijuana, but some cancer experts have taken the results with a grain of salt.
Doctors and authorities shouldn't act like jerks. All they should do is a good research. Parents of Deryn did the best thing they could, they saved life of their son despite the fact that saving of his life was prohibited by the law! You can see that this absurd should be stopped once and forever.
This story happened in the UK, but here in the USA (and everywhere else) this prohibition caused numerous deaths and high level of incarceration. It's sad when parents have to heal their child independently from doctors. It could be sadder if these parents obeyed these physicians.
#Ludwig_Mies_van_der_Rohe , born in #1886 in #Aachen , joined Peter Behrens' #architectural#office at the age of 22; there he met #Walter_Gropius and Le Corbusier. Soon, Mies van der Rohe became a #protagonist of the new #glass and #steel#architecture of the time. His #design for a glass and steel #high -rise #building at #Bahnhof Friedrichstrasse in #Berlin was decisive. He was responsible for the #artistic direction of Deutscher Werkbund starting in 1925. In 1927, the #Weissenhofsiedlung in Stuttgart was created under his direction. In 1930, Walter Gropius appointed Mies van der Rohe to the position of director of the #Bauhaus ; on August 10, 1933 he had to close it under pressure from the NSDAP. He afterwards emigrated to the United States. In 1938 he went to #Chicago , where he took over the direction of the architecture department at the #Armour_Institute . He became one of the most influential architects in the #world . His steel skeleton buildings with large-scale glass curtain walls such as the Seagram Building in #NewYork (1958) or the National Gallery in Berlin (1968) are among the highlights of modern architecture. His #furniture designs usually evolved in connection with his buildings. Ludwig Mies van der Rohe died in 1969 in Chicago. #jeddah#Riyadh
